CAFFE` LATTE` PRESENTS
A countdown of the 200 songs possessing the best lyrics of all-time. A playlist on spotify will be added at the end of the week.
“…He’s a soldier
waving at the shore.
And in her heart
the time has come
to lose a son ...”
'Listen Without Prejudice Vol.1' was George Michael's 2nd solo studio album. Released in 1990, it featured the self-penned track "Mother's Pride".
The moving song revolves around a woman who has lost her partner to war. Her little boy grows into a soldier eager to enlist and follow in his father's footsteps. The mother looks on as her son sets off to another conflict zone. At the song's conclusion, it is revealed that the young man - like his father before him- has died fighting.
As new songs are covered on this blog, a definitive version will be added to a spotify playlist. Find it and the other Caffé Latté playlists at:
